    Trip is last week of Feb. Which do you recommend? 8 days @ WL with up grade from free DDP to DXDP (2 boys, 4 & 6, big eaters) or 10 days at PO with DXDP? Both come out to around the same $. Is giving up 2 days worth the convience and luxury?

    That's a tough question, Harold; both options sound fabulous.  I will tell you that my honest opinion is that ten days at Port Orleans Riverside sounds like the more ideal vacation to me.  I believe that ten days is the perfect trip length and Port Orleans Riverside is my favorite moderate resort.  I will say, though, that the Wilderness Lodge is absolutely lovely with its woodsy charm and rustic ambiance.  I don't think you can go wrong with either choice, especially considering you'd be splurging on the deluxe dining plan.  Two things to consider:

    1. A stay at Wilderness Lodge on the deluxe dining plan would give you more restaurants to experience with all of those dining credits without having to leave your resort.

    2. A longer stay at Port Orleans Riverside would allow you the time to try more restaurants all over property.

    It's a tough choice, but the lengthier stay would be my decision.  Good luck!
